Laurence, the following code has been working fine on our development machines using MS Server 2003 / IIS 6.0, without HTTP compression and without SSL. Is there anything extra that I need to do to ensure that this code does not break for SSL and/or HTTP compression?
Use case: The server sends an Excel file to an IE client and the client machine displays a Microsoft Open/Save dialog.
I am grateful for you response, since although this helps us to use Aspose.Cells better, it is not strictly speaking an Aspose question. So, thanks very much for your feedback.
